, get something done handle things.to president obama says he wants to move away from this. a lot ofms to be agreement in congress, but we are not there yet. we have a debt ceiling. while they passed to budgets, they still have not gone to the whole process. we could continue with these stop-measures to keep the government from shutting down until eight -- an agreement is made. , go ahead.ssee caller: i would like her to define the word "politico." americanught government for the past 19 years and we are not governed by parties. we do not covered by the constitution. example which one is not mentioned in the constitution. if madison and hamilton thought it was important and washington thought it was important, it would have been in there. resolutions are non- binding. all it does is increase the burden of debt of my students who are now in debt probably $50,000 already. they have not graduated from high school already. households are in debt to the tune of $150,000 -- host: you have given us a lot to work with. what level do you teach? caller: high school. 12th graders? caller: yes, si
. republicans seem to think this was something that the president miscalculated on and the economy will be absorb it. >> i think there's been miscalculations on both sides. ultimately republicans miscalculated to the extent they thought that president obama would be attacked for this, people would read this as obama mishandling the economy as opposed to republicans not being reasonable. democrats miscalculated the short term impact but long-term we will see job layoffs and furlough. >> we're starting to see it this week. friday the furlough notices went out. some of these are furloughs, not layoffs and there's a difference but if you're furloughed you're not buying a new truck this summer. >> if your hours are cut from 40 to 30 hours a weekt stops from you spending, it will have a long-term impact on the private sector. that's the concern and you'll see that maybe not in three weeks but certainly in three months. that's where you'll begin to see -- >> the question is a matter of when. when creditors come calling sooner or later. do you put your house in order before they make the c

. that would be helped, if the senate did not pass the bill, not pat 60-40, but 70-30. 85-15, something like that. the way the next few weeks work out, if president obama can get a bigger majority behind ap gun violence reduction bill in the senate, that helps get to the house. the bloomberg ads might help giving bigger numbers of democrats and republicans to vote for a background checks bill that could get a bigger majority in the senate. >> and wayne lal pierre appeared on "meet the press" earlier. he ridiculed the mayor's plan. take a be listen. >> we have have people all over, millions of people, sending us $5, $10, $15 checks saying, stand up to this guy. that says we can only have three bullets, which somewhat he said. stand up to this guy, that says ridiculous things like, the nra wants firearms with nukes on them. it's insane the stuff he says. >> dave, what's stronger? bloomberg's billions or the nra's millions of members and small donors? >> i think psychologists would call what lapierre doing there is -- the nra had a hemmer lock on washington so long because of its lobbying power
, and then barack obama picked you to be the head of nie age. nih. how did that happen? >> medicine, non-partisan. may always be that way. that is something we should value if we care about our health and that of our family and our friends and our constituents. this is not something where republicans and democrats generally differ. the president9, in his brief made this announcement, and then i want to ask you what happened. [video clip] dowe knew the work that you would not get done if left solely to the private sector. some research does not lend itself to a quick profit, and that is why places like the nih were founded, and that is why my administration is for the pursuit of discovery, and that is why we are announcing we were awarded $5 billion, that is with a b, in grants through the recovery act to conduct cutting- edge research all across the america. >> assuming you were in the room, what happened to the $5 billion? >> it went to accelerate some very exciting science that otherwise would have taken a lot longer. we have talked about cancer. our ability to know for 20 different ca
argueed more for a stimulus in obama's first term. is this what you're saying here? a greater stimulus would have allayed some of this? >> two things are important. basic economic principle, your spend something my income. my spend something your income. if we had a larger stimulus and we had spent it more wisely we "t" would have had more of an affect. it turns out the money we used to keep teachers and cops on the job although a lot of teachers have since been fired had very little affect. but the money we spent to fix roads, bridges and other infrastructure that we have to eventually fix anyway, that had a tremendously positive affect. we should have not long term multi decade national program. why can the chinese afford first-rate rail and highways more fabulous than we have. south korean internet, we can't forward this? because our government policies are focused on making the rich richer. and the republicans have basically said that to us. they said that the rich don't have enough, and the way to get them more is the austerity programs that will take from the poor the disabled, t
wolffe, thanks for your time tonight. >>> ahead, something happened today that nobody could have predicted a year ago. how is rand paul helping the obama agenda? >>> and big news on the gun safety fight today. a major development that we really need to talk about. >>> plus, a civil war of epic proportions is unfolding inside the republican party. and rush limbaugh is on fire. >>> one more thing before we go to break today. on the tenth anniversary of the iraq war, i think it's important we look back on the history that was chronicled in a war zone. something that has always struck me are the photos taken by samantha appleton. she covered the first three years of the war for "the new yorker" magazine and "time" magazine. and in my mind, very few have captured what came out of her camera. and her work. no one better than samantha. her images are some of the most memorable and searing snapshots. we've got more on why it's a day to remember, especially our brave men and women who fought for us.

the assault weapons ban because that is something that is something that is still an activist for those pushing for gun control. it's very telling that organizing for action, obama's nonprofit group has made its only focus to be on guns to be on background checks. >> you'll have other things, but out of the big three, it's not going to have high capacity clips and assault weapons ban. >> the public conversation about their is about a much broader range of issues. but on a legislative front it looks like it's getting to be a much narrower focus. >> you have huge support for assault weapons and it's not happening. in that's the one connection to newtown is high capacity magazines. >> but not in the senate bill. >> yep. >> we'll be back. but first trivia time. who's the first u.s. house member to have a sibling serve ti ti simultaneo simultaneously. it was thomas blounts. he served in the house beginning in 1973. his brother william, sorry -- 1793. his brother began serving in the senate in 1796. and congratulations to today's winner. it's not bob costa. it's allison funk. i'm amazed. if y
to do voluntary things. if you look at how much money, because it sort of with the obama administration, all the science you're talking about that has shown how addictive it is. there's a push to do something about this. in the obesity trends, saw the food industry doubling its lobbying money. you saw them reclassify pizza as a vegetable. you saw them kill -- the kill this sugar salt and fat, limits in marketing to children, on the other hand you see let's move and voluntary labelling. >> taco bell was trying to get food stamps to be able to spend it on tacos. >> the affordable care act is a significant victory in this regard, not only did it fund preventive care, which went into making sure that people knew what they were putting in their bodies. but it also advanced the availability of nutritional standards for people going out and purchasing food. you could see exactly what you were ingesting, and those are two underreported aspects of the affordable care act. >> which sees its anniversary saturday. we have to leave it there. that was an awesome discussion, i'm not going to eat dorit
forces passengers to check their bags, something that costs them money at american airlines. this experiment is taking place at four airports. we'll see how it goes. >> a lot more to bring you. a quiet gesture. president obama's tour of the middle east and may be the most symbolic moment of the trip. the archbishop on gay marriage, what he fears will happen if justices rule in favor of same-sex couples. and nimble as a cat, technology that apple may be protecting your eye >> dan: after all the public events and speeches it was a quiet gesture in a jerusalem cemetery that may have defined his visit to middle east. president put a stone down from m king kick washington memorial on the grave of isak rabin saying it's harder to embark on peace. he arrived in jordan this morning. the president was greeted by jordan's king abdullah at the royal palace. they got down to business. during a news conference, he said he is worried about syria's future once president assad leaves office. >> i'm very concerned becoming an enclave for extremists because they thrive in chaos. >> dan: durin
't think they did use it. now, the intelligence committee, and the chairman, he is get that from the obama executive branch. someone is telling them one thing and the president is saying something else. they need to get their act in gear. >> the republicans put together, some of them, a report that they called an autopsy, why they called it an autopsy i have no idea but that is the word they used, 100-page report saying certain positions on social issues, gentleman, are turning off young voters from the party. many young voters see these meters as some of the civil rights issues of our time. >> that is certainly true but this report didn't provide a clear direction for the republican party nor a clear analysis of what specifically went wrong. there was not a clear agenda to revitalize the economy and economic growth and fix an economy that is wobbly. the only real difference that the, at cpac was pat caddell who spoke truth to power about what would be in the report and what the republicans are doing. >> let me say something about what pat said because he will not toot his own horn but he
i'll put you down as a maybe on barack obama. >> your view is what? both parties, hard to be saying this. because we just go the through this elect, neither side wants to hazard doing something that makes it look stupid, right? >> absolutely, it will make it really difficult for either party to be doing anything that can be viewed as a loss for midterm that is why folks in senate who running for reelection did not vet for the budget, this is about posterring for that moment in time, we'll not see any grand bargains, because neither side will be willing to go first. and as much as i would love to see them go together, they have this mutual distrust that says, we'll going it as loning togethu leap first. neil: that means. >> that means we'll keep going up in the market. let's just shut down washington for the year we'll be in good shape. neil: all right, in the meantime, powerball dream or a fiscal nightmare, the lottery winner, who could not have won at a worst time. your finances can't manage themselves, but that doesn't mean they won't try. bring all your finances together with the
into office in 2009, the obama administration put a great deal of emphasis on settlements, seemed to side with the palestinian view that there should be a moratorium on settlements. that was something the prime minister was willing to do for a short period of time, ten months, but was not willing to do again. there seems to be some flexibility in the palestinian position, but look, there's a real lack of trust between prime minister netanyahu and president abbas. the ability of the president to kind of bridge that gap is going to take probably months before you see potential start of negotiations. you know, the middle east peace process will consume much of the president's second term in office. >> a lot of this will depend on his relationship with both of these men, the president's relationship with both of these men. if you saw some encouraging signs with netanyahu, let me play for you what abbas had to say after what he called useful talks. let's listen. all right. we don't have it, but i'm going to read it to you. president obama said, if we're going to succeed, part of what we're goi

for something like 30 years and democrats called that wildly radical. what they're trying to do is give themselves a little maneuvering room. meanwhile barack obama saying we have no debt crisis at all and debt is not a problem is trying to hold a slightly firmer line to bring the republicans closer to them. bill: which is the comment he made last week. one more point on this you get a sense things have turned for the serious, whether you like the senate budget idea from last week or not. it appears now that the sides can engage. which is what house republicans have wanted for, what, three or four years now, am i right? >> yeah. i think you're right. sort of like the guy who decides he wants to be a taxidermist and a veterinarian and that way he can promise you get your dog back no matter what. the fact that the democrats are finally engaging on this which is a big problem for a lot of red state democrats but it is good news for the country because we're getting closer to regular order, the way this thing is supposed to work where both parties meet and reconcile actual documents. bill:
something like that. let me prove the point. show a picture of this guy when he's not playing the rel of satan? there. that doesn't look anything like obama. >> greg: so he did make him look like obama? bob is right! >> bob: exactly right. >> dana: i don't think the picture helps the case. >> eric: that picture? >> bob: no. >> greg: you convinced me. >> andrea: that looks like juan valdez. i want to know mini series, i don't think it looks like president obama at all, at all. i want to know what mark brunett has against def leopard. that's from the "rock of ages" video. that looks like just like -- that is not the best clip. anyway. >> bob: i'm telling you, your point makes my point. that dude, they had to make him look like obama. >> eric: stop it. >> dana: bob, what did you say when the other movie used the george w. bush mask as like one of the murder killers -- >> greg: his head in "game of thrones." >> dana: right. is that hollywood against george w. bush? >> greg: they admitted to doing that. >> andrea: we did it as a topic on the show. >> bob: we did? you know there are many to
a year away from developing a nuclear weapon. >> that is a red line for us. something that would not only be dangerous for israel but would be dangerous for the world. >> president obama will use the visit to mend fences with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu after the two leaders sparred over expansion of jewish settlements and areas claimed by the palestinians. on the trip mr. obama will head to the palestinian authority for a meeting with president mahmoud abbas. >> this reflects a deep commitment by president obama to see the limitation of the two state solution. >> reporter: not everyone there is happy the president is coming. some protesters in bethlehem burned ape poster of mr. obama. the president rounds off his trip with a stop in jordan for a meeting g meeting. administration officials have set low expectations for the trip saying there will be no major announcements of a breakthrough in the israeli-palestinian peace process. >>> the mayor of kansas city missouri, was in the middle of delivering his state of the city address when a man shoved him, an
to latinos. >> yes 73% of asian americans, and 71% of hispanic americans voted for president obama. i think the republicans realize that unless they do something about this they will -- they will bleed even more votes from these communities. >> bill: you know, it's interesting to me -- we talk a lot about the latino vote. there's not a lot of talk about the asian american vote. why is it that 73% of asian americans would vote for president obama. >> i do believe immigration reform was large part of it. i also believe that they followed president obama's policies of economic stimulus an balanced approach, and -- of making sure that we have -- had more for hire education. >> bill: interesting, yeah so it's the policies really that they saw for president obama that they supported. and on the immigration reform do you believe that a guest worker program will be or should be part of it? i mean we talk about the path to citizenship, and i think there are some differences on that, but most people agree there has to be some path to citizenship even if it's difficult, but the
opinion, and that is something that a lot of groups including organizing for action, outgrowth of the obama campaign, the group that gabby giffords has sponsored, and the mayor bloomberg group -- they have been trying to galvanize what they see in public opinion polls to apply pressure to members of congress and over the next two weeks lawmakers will be home doing town hall meetings and other events and these gun control groups are trying to stage rallies, protests, organized petition drives and find ways to apply that pressure, showing what public opinions polls are showing, which is support for some of these measures, encoding the background checks bill which gets 80% or 90% approval rating. chart one is a background checks should stay the same or become less strict. let's watch a recent nra ad. sex in a recent closed-door speech to donors, politicians and media, bill clinton spoke about gun owners. a lot of these people, all they have as their hunting and their fishing, or they have been listening to this stuff for so long that they believe it, and we remember barack obama s
middle east peace and something lasting legacy that i can put on the board, if you will. but at this point i think, you know, president obama has gotten a lot of points for the eloquence and the cleverness with which he offered this speech over the head in some ways over region's stalemated political leadership but he hasn't really outlined a very new in terms of negotiating points platform that suggests we can pick up new diplomacy. frankly, we've been talking about such a daunting list of challenges for kerry to work on, it's hard to imagine that he's going to be bashing his head against a brick wall if that's what is still the case when it comes to the actual peace process. >> ifill: finally, he's very different or is he very different from hillary clinton from what we've seen for the last four years? is it substance? is it geography, the middle east instead of the east? >> i think he is going to be different from secretary clinton in the sense that, you know, people see this as probably his ultimate achievement as secretary of state. he's not necessarily looking forw
president shimon peres says he believes president obama will order an attack on iran if necessary to prevent iran from getting nuclear weapons. peres says shoot something aa3 last option but it is an option if diplomasy doesn't work. he is hosting president obama for a state dinner at this hour. those are the headlines. back to tracy and adam. adam: jamie colby from fox news channel. thank you very much. >> you're welcome. adam: key retailers are on the move after reporting earnings. sandra smith has today's earnings. >> ross stores if you're looking for green. look at this run-up. if you don't know ross stores, they basically buy their goods, home furnishings, apparels, they die them from department stores and sell them at a discount. a sign retailers still looking for a bargain that ross stores is doing so well. if you look at year-to-date chart, keeping up with the broader market, up 7% so far this year but certainly not been without its volatility. profits matched the high end of the range of estimates for analysts. some good news out of ross stores. not so much lululemon. but look at th

at steve croft interview with obama and clinton. that's humiliating. you wouldn't have seen that on "60 minutes" back 40 years ago. they would have been ashamed to put something on like that. i think there is a affinity with this administration. in the bush years there was a lot of hard hitting stuff opposed to bush, especially after the iraq war went south. then they felt all guilty. they should have done x, y and z in the beginning. they were really tough. i think there really is a difference in how hard hitting the networks are depending on whether there is a conservative or a liberal in office. >> bill: i agree 100%. call them low information voters are becoming the majority in this country because there isn't information out there anymore. >> it's buried on the internet. >> bill: not on the internet. it's all skewed. you know, objective hard-hitting, uncovering things. if you don't know information, much rarer than it used to be. >> do you think the "times" or the post or the globe or 00 "l.a. times" 30 years ago was objective? what you had then was a liberal monopoly on the netted

supervision for all their new security activities. that is something glass-steagall didn't even do for the banking industry. peter emphasizes as the obama administration has as well that the 1999 legislation enabled banks during the recent recession to play a major role in taking up and taking on the failing nonbanks and to ensure that the more important functions continue to operate in an uninterrupted fashion. i do however believe that i take issue with peter wallison's paper on the 2009 stress test mandated by treasury and administered by bank regulators. peter correctly demonstrates the stress tests were very rigorous, plenty rigorous. they assumed the obama administration's recovery program would fail. that was not only going to fail but make things far worse which is curious given the entity that created those stress tests was the treasury department given the task of promoting and carrying out the president's recovery program. it is not the rigor of the test that i question but rather in the necessity. peter accepts the treasury assumption that they were needed in order to r

to young people. young people want to be spoken to like they're adults and that is what barack obama did so well in 2008. he spent a lot of time going to college campuses and asked young people for their votes, which is something that i don't think politicians have done enough of. just gone to a campus and said, here i am, i'm cool, it's great to see you guys, but actually asking young people for their vote in the same way they ask people of other generations for their vote. >> host: if they go to college campuses at all. mitt romney and that campaign was criticized for largely avoiding college voters and maybe sort of giving up on them and writing them off. >> guest: yeah. i think that history is when you actually go to young street voters and reach out to them you have a chance of getting their vote. barack obama in 2008 -- one of the fascinating things about his campaign was that he actually rap a program in iowa, geared on high school students called barack stars because in iowa you can vote in the primary if you're 17 and will be 18 in the general. so he went to all these high schools

than obama had hoped in. in washington that's called a cut. if you wanted ten of something and you only got eight of something, you go i got cut too. actually, you walked away with eight. but, so that was a $2.5 trillion spending reduction over the next decade. it hasn't happened yet. we're still, we have several problems facing us. the trillion dollars in obamacare tax increases that hit this decade, that begin to hit now. oddly enough, the president and the democrats in the house and senate decided to put the tax increases, the bulk of them after the 2012 election. so everybody voted, and now the tax increases hit. it's not helpful for the economy, and i think it's going to be unpleasant for voters. >> host: ron's up next from watertown, south dakota, on the democratic line. good morning, ron. >> caller: good morning. >> guest: hey, ron. >> caller: yeah. thanks for taking my call. say, i have listened to you for a long time, and i find very little that i don't disagree with. however, i know a little bit about the tax code, and there's many things in the tax code, especially this busin
. the moment of opportunity and optimism that i want to start with. the reason the president obama made that statement is because we have a combination that together is something that could turn the tide on epidemics. we also have a national strategy that the white house about a couple of years ago and provides a roadmap. more than a million people are living with hiv in the united states. for the last decade, they have been at the same level and perhaps more alarmingly, you and infections are rising by those who represent 66% of their infections in the united states. the impact is quite alarming. they have a heavy reliance on medicaid. most are not on treatment. yet, as i was alluding to, there is new data that shows we can actually get to what many of us are calling treatment that is scaled up. it has made a huge difference in helping people live much longer and healthier and has been shown to reduce the risk of transmission by as much as 96% and that is very significant. treatment has clinical benefits in a public health benefit. but where are we in providing treatment in the united
because the escalating situation, they have to do something. >> nick paton walsh in beirut. thank you. the situation here in syria is sure to come up tomorrow. president obama makes his first trep to israel since moving into the white house. the president will be just over 300 miles from where these chemical weapons might have been used in syria when he arrives in tel aviv. you can see the proximity here. no main announcements are planned during this visit. mideast leaders obama will immediate with include netanyahu, mahmoud abbas and king abdullah of jordan. >>> so you thought the election season was over. huh-uh. it is primary day in south carolina, folks. i'm talking low country. you see it right there. this state's first congressional district anchored by charleston and what a cast of characters this little race for congress. you have a man known as the former governor of the appalachiap ppa lash shap trail. the son of a certain media mogul, and you've also got the sister of a very famous funny man. and don't to get this, we're talking about south carolina. home of kamikaze style
then they will be at around $7 and something cents for tipped employees. but it's just a shame. now, obama said $9 an hour but he wanted to end his at 2015. until 2015, our bill, as we stage it over three years, would be at $9 and $0.15 an hour. pretty close to what obama said but one more year. get it to 1010 and index it and the administration is on board with that. >> good. does that mean we won't have the ongoing battle. >> it loses it, and then we have to bump it back up again. small businesses said they would like it because they would know what they had to plan for, two 1/2 %, they can handle that. >> what about we hear every time this issue comes up, it's going to cost jobs. there will be fewer people being able to work because employers will have to fire people, blah, blah, blah, blah blah. >> i heard john boehner talking about that. show me the proof. don't give me that verbiage, that rhetoric. there is absolutely no empirical data to show that. in fact, just the opposite. a long-time study was done actually in oregon. they took a county in oregon that boarded a cou
on this at all who said this is okay, they think they're satisfied with the situation. everybody says something has to be done. we hear that from congress, hear that from the senate and v.a. itself. why are you now calling on president obama personally to get involved? you're calling for a presidential commission. why do you think that would help? >> because we're tired of the rhetoric. we need results. the only thing that matters is whether or not our veterans are getting the benefits they deserve. we don't think we should have to wait until the end of 2015 to have this system cleaned up. it's clear the v.a. can't handle it. the backlog and disability and number of claims waiting continue tops go up. the d.o.d. is part of this. we need the president to step in and fix it. put the full creativity and intelligence and power of the american public and white house behind it. we're not asking to put somebody on mars. we're asking to fix a broken paperwork process. right now, 97% of these claims are still on paper. let's go above the v.a. and above the d.o.d. and to the commander in chief and get hi
neither. but it is something that caught the eye of thousands. good morning, everyone and welcome to "weekends with alex witt." let's get to what's happening right now out there. as president obama heads back to the u.s., just about 90 minutes or so from now after the final stop on his mideast trip he visited the fables city of petra, jordan, this morning. and one major topic of discussion for the president, the civil war going on in nearby syria, and the massive number of syrian refugees now in jordan. nbc's peter alexander is traveling with the president and joins us from amman. so peter with a good saturday morning to you. how has this trip gone so far for the president in jordan? >> well, right now, alex, the president's enjoying the end of his trip. punctuating it, as you noted, with a trip to the celebrated archaeological site in this country known as petra. the focus of the trip has largely been on the future. but at least for the last couple hours he's focusing on the middle east past. advisers tell me this is actually a place that president obama added to the itinerary. a
of that fighting spilled over into israel. so definitely a very high concern, something that will be talked about between the president and prime minister netanyahu. >> probably just moves up on the agenda. do we expect president obama to move forward in the movement in the israeli-palestinian peace process as well? >> reporter: that is the issue that is causing controversy. a lot of people are not expecting. they have low expectations when it comes to whether or not a peace process plan will be put in place. but we are now hearing that there is possibly going to be some movement because we're hearing that kerry is coming back here on saturday to sit with netanyahu to see how they can push forward this peace process between israel and the palestinians. the palestinians looking at this saying, look, we don't think anything is going to move forward. they really hope that something will happen. but there hasn't been any high expectations here. >> sarah sidener, thank you. >>> and now syria. the assad regime and rebel forces are accusing one another of using chemical weapons. syrian state media repor

brought two props. i brought an original source of light that is about 5,000 years old and something that was invented in the late 19th century. i want to show you how big it is in politics. if we were still in the age of the candle with barack obama and the modern left. first of all, we would have studies how many poor people couldn't afford candles. then we would have a focus on a candle redistribution law. then we would have the candle making union asking to block the making of the electric light. then we would have groups based in san francisco arguing that electric lights will endanger the environment and we'll have at least three lawyers running ads that say you can be killed by electricity. if someone tries to put electricity if n your house call us and we'll sue them for you. both parties are prisoners of the past. they are trapped in the ideas nd mind set. they they are all trapped in the age of candles. the first effort in electric light was 1800. in 189 thomas edson's laboratory had the first successful electric light. it lasted 13.5 hours. within a few months, edson hit a
but spending less than obama had hoped. in washington that is called a cut. if you wanted 10 of something and you only got eight of something, you say i got cut two. if you actually walk away with eight. so, that was a $2.50 trillion spending reduction over the next decade. it has not happened yet. we have several problems facing us. the trillion dollars in the obamacare tax increases that hit this decade, that begin to hit now. oddly enough, the president and the democrats in the house and senate decided to put the tax increases, the bulk of them, after the 2012 elections. so, everybody voted and now the tax increases hit. it is not helpful for the economy and i think it is going to be unpleasant for voters. from ron is up next watertown, south dakota. democrats' line. caller: thank you for taking my call. i have listened to you for a long time and i find very little . don't disagree with per however, i know a little about the tax code and there are many things in the tax code, especially the business exemptions, that i very vague. and there's a lot of companies and businesses that don't
obama is going through to reassure skeptical israelis about where he stands on iran. >> i have been crystal clear about my position on iran possessing a nuclear weapon. that is a redline for us. it's something that would not only be dangerous for israel but would be dangerous for the world. >> reporter: while he says all options are on the table to stop iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon, the president also wants to convince israeli leaders to allow more time for diplomacy. >> what we're going to be doing is continuing to engage internationally with iran understanding that we've set up the toughest sanctions ever. it's having a significant effect. >> reporter: a tough sell analysts say when israel believes iran is closer to a nuclear weapon than the u.s. does. and the tense relationship between the countries' leaders doesn't help. >> president obama and prime minister netanyahu have had a strained relationship for the last four years. it's difficult to see, but this visit is going to change the underlying dynamic in that relationship. >> here at home president obama putting the fi
of the scriptures from genesis to revelation. this weekend, right wing radio host glenn beck tweeted something about the show. quoting beck, quote, anyone else think the devil in "the bible" sunday on history channel looks exactly like that guy? that guy is what glenn beck calls president obama, mainly because he doesn't respect him enough to use his title. according to beck, the actor who plays the devil in the series looks like the president. beck has his followers which is why his tweet took off. since the broadcast, more than 20,000 tweets containing the words obama and satan have been posted. the producers of the show called any resemblance utter nonsense. today, beck took to twitter again and not to clarify. he said this. media, relax. actor has been in similar roles before. funny, nothing more. for different reasons, the bible is one of my fave shows. keep watching. actor has been in similar roles before. in the world of glenn beck, that means he's definitely a ringer for the president because this isn't the first time he's made that comparison. >> let me play devil's advocate and may mean th
rid of obama care and go with the same thing we lost the election on. it's amazing from at least i think so. i don't know how some of the other panelists feel. it's something really unique and different in american politics. >> harold ford, jonathan shade writes that this, he actually makes the argument that this is a good idea for the gop, given where the party is at and how resistant they are to fundamental change. i want to read an excerpt. the report determinedly avoids confronting the party's most fundamental problem -- it's attachment to an economic agenda that most voters correctly identify as serving the needs of a wealthy minority. if you cared a lot about preserving that policy focus, you'd urge the party to chuck overboard a couple of issues ancillary to your economic agenda, opposition to immigration and gay rights, which republican elites never really cared about to begin with and take your chances. that's exactly what the report advocates. ha do you make of that? >> i agree with him. the last time, i'm 42 years old. the person who -- >> don't brag. >> who led this --
this exercise for quite some time, and obviously something went wrong, tragically, seven died. but they say political posturing on the backs of dead marines. see, i think, apart from this ridiculous, horrible thing that reid said, i think tim obama has misplayed their hand. they have just misplayed their hand and it's back firing. and this one is going to resound -- you know this is going to be a several-day story. >> the marines are right, judd is right. no discussion there. i take your point, creating the idea that the world falls apart on march 1, they overplayed their hand. that said, i think we have to be very vigilant, not in the sense that harry reid was talking about, in making sure that we follow the impact of the sequester. as i said earlier, i firmly believe that this is going to hurt the economy, an economy that is struggling to really get a foothold and showing signs of life. absolutely the worst time to set one of these fiscal time bombs. >> i would like to react to that. and maybe i will. i just want to read this from the marines. saying this exercise, for example, was planne
